The week leading up to her visit was really busy for me so I didn't have a chance to prepare anything. This worked out OK as we looked through a couple of my craft books and found a couple projects to do. (I love the craft books from Usborne, they have great ideas and clear directions!) She picked a lizard that involved drawing, cut out & colouring and then we adapted two crafts to make box monkeys. Finally my stash of craft stuff was put to use! As she was looking through the books she would say, "oh, that one needs fabric" or "we would need boxes for that." I was able to say, "I have fabric! I have boxes!" Hooray, no crafting delays due to
Here she is with our box monkeys. In the background you can see one of the projects that inspired this one.
